This is why domestic violence victims don’t speak up, Johnny
First of all, this story isn’t about the recent issues between Johnny Depp and his soon-to-be ex-wife Amber Heard. This is about all those people who are now watching it play out in the media and are thinking: wow, that was/is me and my partner. I can’t help but find parallels to these celebrities’ story and my own, and so many other people I know.
People who haven’t been through domestic violence often wonder why victims don’t speak up, and I think the case with Depp and Heard shows why: because people don’t seem to believe the woman. “She’s a gold digger” “She just wants his money” “He’s a nice guy”.
It is the biggest fear of a woman who is being abused that people won’t believe her. That people will think her bruises are fake or not real because how could the loving family man do that?
Well, let me tell you: it happens every single day, and women are still dying at the hands of their boyfriends, husbands and other males in their lives. It is a sad fact that our society might be more educated about domestic violence but not everyone is sympathetic, especially when divorce and money is involved.
So where to from here? I don’t know but I was hoping that big news stories like the Depp/Heard case would shed a light on violence, but all it does is further the notion that the woman is making it up to slander a man and get his hard earned cash. Yes, that does happen, but why are we so quick to say it every time?
